    Marketing Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Myplanet.

    Interview

    I had 3 interviews with this company for a marketing position. Staff was extremely friendly and incredibly intelligent.

    For those who have made it to the 3rd round, prepare yourselves to be tested, questioned and to be meeting and speaking with other people within the company as they look for fit.

    I didn't get the job but they offered me another position elsewhere because I was one of the highest ranking candidates.

    Accounting Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Myplanet in July 2011.

    Interview

    The interview process is quite rigorous. I was asked to do some activities that would put me outside of my comfort zone to see how I would react to being thrown a challenge. It was actually a really neat interview, different people would introduce and explain each task. One was creating a webpage with minimal instruction but I was allowed the use of the internet to research further if I had to, another was a short story, another was accounting related and the last was working with a spreadsheet of financials. I never got feedback on my interview and what was most frustrating was that after devoting about 6 hours to the interview, I didn't get the courtesy of a call saying they had gone with a different candidate. Just nothing, which I felt was terribly rude of this fledgling little company.

    Front End Developer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Toronto, ON (Canada)

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Myplanet (Toronto, ON (Canada)) in March 2015.

    Interview

    I was put in a room with one interviewer reading questions off a sheet for 3 hours which mostly consisted of terms, definitions, and whiteboard challenges. I was told to bring my computer but I only used it for a single coding challenge at the very end and still wasn't allowed to actually use the internet. In contrast to the other interviews posted here, they asked me very little about my working style, personality, or anything not coding-challenge related. They didn't ask me about my current projects and didn't seem to have reviewed my portfolio.

    I was told they would get back to me within a week. A week went by, so I emailed a "thanks for the interview" message. I got no reply. After two and a half weeks I emailed asking for a response and was emailed what looked like a generic form rejection letter with very little context. I found this at best unprofessional and at worst pretty rude. I have used this interview as an example of how not to treat potential candidates.

    Interview Questions

    • What is functional programming?   1 Answer
    • What are closures? Give an example on a whiteboard.   1 Answer

    Interaction Designer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Toronto, ON (Canada)
    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Myplanet (Toronto, ON (Canada)) in April 2019.

    Interview

    I was contacted a month or two after my initial application and asked to indicate a time for a first telephone call with one of their interaction designers. I replied immediately and scheduled a call for the following week using their online booking system, to which I quickly received a confirmation.

    I missed the initial call due to a problem with my phone but thankfully the interviewer, Lailee, called me back a few minutes later. The interview left a very good impression on me. Lailee framed the interview as a conversation between two designers and I felt that she really wanted to connect with me as an individual- this was a refreshing change from the HR screeners I was used to; no canned questions, very organic conversation with someone who knows the job. She did a great job of describing the role, projects, and team dynamics, and was very transparent about their hiring process (telephone interview, on-site interview, design challenge).

    I was contacted at the start of the following week to visit their offices for a second interview and to meet the rest of the team. Unfortunately at this point I had already accepted an offer from another company with whom I was much further along in the hiring process.

    Based on my experience MyPlanet seems like a great company to work for, with interesting projects, an experienced team and very good employee benefits and professional development programs.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Myplanet.

    Interview

    I had an initial phone interview to discuss my fit, as well as the company at large. I was then invited for an in-person interview with three people. It was around 2 hours and was split into three sections. A Q&A period, a design synthesis exercise, and a design studio exercise. The whole process was enjoyable and comfortable. I would have accepted the position had I not been offered another role better suited for my professional interests.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Myplanet (Markham, ON (Canada)).

    Interview

    Phone interview, which lead to an in person interview which included a Myers-Briggs test, and a problem solving excise. Everyone was friendly and welcoming.

    Got a vague answer about not getting an offer, and after some back and forth it turned out that the Myers-Briggs test was the deciding factor.
